Last year while looking through Canada's Flowers I noticed mention of
a future volume on the colourful artwork carried on the gunshields of
RCN corvettes. A quick question to SMML
provided me with the title, and a visit to ABEBOOKS.COM
soon had this volume on its way to me.
Upon arrival I was not disappointed. There are approximately 120 different
designs provided. In cases where the original photograph was not of sufficient
quality for reproduction, L B Jensen has done b/w drawings. This volume
is the source for much of my gunshield
It is mentioned in the book that the Maritime Command Museum in Halifax,
NS has the complete collection (where they still exisit). If anyone is
planning on visiting there, please get in touch with me and try to get
photos of as many as possible.
